A Western Bulldogs supporter was evicted from Etihad Stadium on Sunday after allegedly racially abusing two Sydney Swans players.
AFL.com.au reports the two players abused were believed to be Lance Franklin and Adam Goodes.
“The behaviour of the man was reported to police by other supporters in the stadium,” a police spokesperson said.
“The 70-year-old Newport man will receive a penalty notice in relation to offensive behaviour.
“Police have spoken to representatives from the Sydney Swans Football Club and have been advised the comments were not heard by any players.”
Witnesses have allegedly reported the word “ape” was directed towards Franklin.
Goddard was at the centre of a similar incident last season when he was racially abused by a Collingwood fan.
Earlier this year, Essendon revoked the membership of a supporter accused of making racist comments towards Goodes.
